The public would be surprised to see how many lawsuits are brought against a care facility due to a resident's involvement in an activity.  It is essential for every activity director and volunteer to ensure resident(s) safety at all times.

Every time a lawsuit or accident happened that the staff of ProvidersWeb became aware of, we updated the safety rules accordingly to prevent the event from happening to anyone else.  The process of discovering a risk, and creating policies and procedures to advert the risk like safety rules, is called risk management.
